MDC youth leader’s expulsion null and void


Movement for Democratic Change leader Solomon Madzore was not expelled from the party. The meeting of the youth assembly that expelled him was not official and the youth assembly does not have powers to expel anyone, party spokesman Douglas Mwonzora said today. He said standing committee officials like Madzore can only be suspended or disciplined by the national council, according to Article 12 of the party’s constitution. Madzore was reportedly expelled on Sunday together with secretary general Promise Mkwananzi. On Friday Chitungwiza chairman Alexio Musundire was also reportedly expelled. The confusion in the party follows calls for leadership renewal and there seems to be a drive to purge all those calling on party leader Morgan Tsvangirai to step down to pave way for a new leadership ahead of the 2018 elections. Tsvangirai said last week that the leadership had resolved its differences.
